Shirley T. Good, 87, died on April 19 in New Holland in the presence of her family. She was born June Shirley Timmins on October 15, 1931, in Frackville, Pennsylvania. She attended high school in Hershey, PA. She was awarded a bachelor’s degree from Mansfield College in home economics, and a master’s degree from Hood College. After graduating from college, she worked in Lancaster and Allentown before relocating to Bowmansville after marrying Linford C. Good. She taught at Twin Valley High School for 30 years before retiring in 1993.

April 28 would have been Lin and Shirley’s 63rd wedding anniversary. They lived in Bowmansville from 1956 to 2016 when they moved to Garden Spot Village in New Holland. Shirley died from complications and dehydration following a viral infection. Though her mobility has been limited for the past two years, she continued to enjoy visitors and celebrate special occasions with her family. Life-long and very active members of Pine Grove Church in Bowmansville, they were recently attending the community chapel at Garden Spot Village due to Shirley’s limited mobility.

Shirley was preceded in death by her older sister Media Patricia Timmins Wagner of New Jersey, and her younger brother Sherman A. Timmins of Michigan. She is survived by her two younger brothers H. Chester Timmins, and Byron H. Timmins, both of the Hershey area.

Shirley and Lin had three children who all reside in Lancaster County. Jacquelyn Good, Bowmansville, married to Irvin B. Boyd, Jr.; Debra K. Good of New Holland; Jeffrey C. Good, Bowmansville, married to Suzy L. Good. They have four grandchildren: D Janine Stahllings, Leola and Laura K. Keeney, Hummelstown, daughters of Debbie Good. Jeff and Suzy have two daughters, Alison L. Good, New York, and Kaitlyn M. Good, Bowmansville. They have five great-grandchildren.

While she was still able, she enjoyed reading and was dedicated to daily Bible reading. She was known as the consummate host with many dinners and receptions in their home, especially in support of her church community. She and Lin were known to open their home to several different young people in need of safe shelter or lodging while taking summer classes or summer jobs. She was a gifted soprano and sang in church choir for many years. Many will also remember her ear-piercing whistle that could quiet any church basement gathering for prayer.

The family will receive friends of Shirley on Thursday, April 25th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Garden Spot Village chapel, 433 South Kinzer Avenue, New Holland. The funeral will be held Friday, April 26, 10:00 a.m. with visitation at 9:00 a.m., at Pine Grove Church, 1194 Reading Road, Bowmansville (Narvon 17555 for GPS). Shirley loved flowers.

I`m deeply sorry of the loss of Mrs.Good, she was the best teacher I ever had, and the only class I always got straight A`s. I always looked forward to going to home-ec class its was terrific. I always loved running into Mrs.Good at Yoders , because after all these years she always knew who I was,she always told she couldn`t forget even if she tried. She was as much a friend as a teacher too.I will miss her, but I will always remeber the memories we made all those years ago. Rest in peace. Your old friend and beloved student, Bonnie(Lorah)Sheetz. class of 1971 TVHS.

As one of Shirley's retired Home Ec friends, it is always sad to lose one of the group. I remember being at her home several times for enjoyable group dinners. When I was president of the Home Ec Assoc, as a thank you, she gave me a church cookbook which I still have and use. She was kind and loving to everyone and will surely be remembered with great affection.
